Letters: November/December 2015
Letters published in IMPACT Magazine's Winter Running and Sports Issue – November/December 2015.
Letters published in IMPACT Magazine Food & Fitness Issue – September/October 2015.
When I saw Gordon Ramsay’s photo on the front of your September October 2015 issue, I thought, hey, wait... was there a mistake? What is Gordon Ramsay doing on the cover of IMPACT! He is a chef, not an athlete. I think it’s fabulous of your magazine to feature a celebrity chef.
I was surprised to learn Gordon Ramsay was a marathoner as well as a triathlete. Somehow, I never associated famous chefs to be just as competitive in sports. I’m sure many of your fans, including myself will continue to look forward to future exciting issues. Thank you for making IMPACT so relevant!

Gratitude and Attitude
I am happy to say I follow most of the tips with good success in your story on Training Your Brain. It is so important to take care of our brain, given that our thoughts, moods and feelings can directly influence our behaviour to achieve fitness goals. Widely accepted cognitive behaviour models demonstrate not only that actions (physical activity) positively influence our emotions; and it works both ways. So our emotions can positively impact our workouts.
I would add an additional tip. Keep a gratitude journal and note just one thing you are grateful for each day. I have almost 20 pages of gratitude notes since April 1, and half of that time my daughter was receiving chemotherapy.
If I can do it, so can you!

Big Box of Fun
We just received the box of fun at our office! Yay! Totally rocked and loved it!!! I read IMPACT with a big cup of coffee on Saturday and was inspired as usual.
I like the element of the nutrition and recipes that are possible to do with ingredients you don’t have to search high and low for. The Kitchen Skills idea will be a great addition to the magazine.
